    I vote for Gore

    Posted by: Andoni

    Gore Pundits are saying Senator Barack Obama's short list for vice presidential nominee consists of Senator Joseph Biden of Delaware, Governor Tim Kaine of Virginia, and Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana. I'm hoping that these names are a form of bobbing and weaving, and that when Obama announces it will be former vice president Al Gore. Gore would add gravitas and experience to the ticket and be somebody that most people know well and respect.

    I pushed Gore for president last year, saying that he was elected in 2000 by the popular vote, and people would want to help make things right this time and restore him to the position he won but was denied by the Supreme Court. I've also pushed him for VP, but most pundits have removed Gore from the list once he announced he wasn't interested.

    Why might Gore accept the vice presidency and what can Obama say to him to convince him? If I were Obama this is how I would get Gore on my ticket:
    1. I would offer him carte blanche on energy policy and climate control. He would be the architect of the country's energy policy and climate control efforts that will carry us forward for a 100 years. This could establish him as a Teddy Roosevelt like figure. I would tell him that he would have much more influence in forming the US energy policy for the 21st century as veep than in the private work he is doing now.
    2. I would remind him how the Republicans have ruined the country over the past 8 years. I would tell him that he can assure Democratic victory and I would appeal to his patriotism and sense of duty to help get the country back on track.
    3. Finally, I would invoke how he was wronged in the 2000 election and that it was time to make a comeback and show the public what a great man he really is and what he can accomplish for the country in government.

    So when all of you get those instant messages in the next 24 to 48 hours, if it's Gore, know that I told you so. If it's not, forget you ever read this.

      Wow. A pic of Al Gore before he was replaced in public by Orson Wells.

      Per ksu499, I was just going to say, "Wow, that picture was taken 40 pounds ago." (But I still think Gore is hhhhhot. I don't think he'd accept the VP spot, though.)

      LOL no never going to happen. Besides I still hate him for ruining the 2000 election

      Oh God~I think I'm going to PUKE~~~

      Wow! Really gotta disagree on this one. I see Gore as a politician more full of himself than even the typical presidential aspirant, and that's saying a lot. Never in my nearly 50 years of life have I seen a politician have so few original thoughts inside his head while taking the credit for the hard work and brilliance of others (I am not referring to the Internet Tube here.).

      Of course, I'm disillusioned by everybody this election cycle, and keep holding out for Barry Goldwater. AU H2O!

      The trouble with Barry Goldwater is that the only people who voted for him were the ones that could comprehend the "AU H2O" bumper stickers.
